Fandoms: The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien
25 Feb 2017
Although set in the early Fourth Age, much of the story is based on events that took place (or could have easily taken place) earlier. So there is quite a bit of looking back to events in the Third Age and beyond. The story is concerned with men, mostly Dúnedain. It is not so much about Tolkien characters, as it is about Tolkien themes (of paradise lost, of the dwindling of a great race, of blood and destiny.)
It is the tale of a man who embarked on an unsought journey and went on to play a major part in the events that shaped the south of Gondor in the early Fourth Age. Along the way he would come to discover his heritage and his place among the Faithful, as well as a sacred vow and his bond with a legendary figure of the past.
